Practice Accreditation Award Information

The VOA is dedicated to improving the management of Osteoarthritis in veterinary practice.

To help achieve this aim we have created the VOA Learning Academy and VOA Practice Accreditation Award.

The objective is to provide support and to guide interested practices towards best practice in Veterinary Osteoarthritis (OA) Management.

The aim of the VOA Practice Accreditation Award is to encourage the following:

1. Knowledge (Learning)

2. Training and clinic set-up (Training and prep)

3. Competence in delivering management (Delivery)

4. Skills in assessment (Demonstrable skills)

5. Ability to involve pet-owners (Client involvement)

6. Record keeping and assess outcome (Evidence)

The Practice Accreditation reflects the amount of interest and dedication in OA care, in your Practice. Evaluation will be made on material submitted by the practice.

We are currently updating the practice pack so please get in touch to find out more.
